PERMITS are available from the COCT offices in Atlantis.
The new permit office is located in the new environmental management departments biodiversity office complex that has recently been completed and launched on the 16 August 2018. The management haven’t moved in yet but will be relocating from their current offices location very soon. The reason for the delay is due to cabling (mainly internet) that has not been installed yet.

Atlantis Dunes forms part of a proclaimed reserve, the Witzands Aquifer Nature Reserve, so normal nature reserve rules apply. The filming / photography clause refers to professional film shoots, not amateurs. The pets rule is obvious – there are steenbok, grysbok, caracal, mole rats, mongoose and other mammal species in the reserve. As for fires, there is no reserve in the Western Cape where fires are allowed other than in designated spots. AFAIK there are no designated spots in Witzands because it is a high risk fire area. Nothing Draconian about the rules that I can see, just the normal things that apply universally.
